Windows 7: multiplayer game connection problem

multiplayer game connection problem


my wife and I wanted to start playing Icewind Dale II on each of our computers respectively. Hers is using windows 7 (64bit) and mine is using windows XP (32bit). Each of our computers will play the game fine. The problem occurs when we try to play together in a TCP/IP game. When the windows 7 computer tries to connect to the hosting XP computer, it kicks her back to the desktop and the icons and desktop is huge (magnifiied). She has to use task manager in order to get out.

If she tries the opposite, have the windows 7 computer host it, when she tries to load the game it does the same thing as above. anyone having similar problems?

thank you
